How to get pregnant after contraception?

Women who have taken contraceptives often wonder: is it possible to get pregnant after birth control pills? We will answer immediately: you can. But how to get pregnant after contraception?


Today, any obstetrician-gynecologist will tell you that there is no need to stop taking contraceptives long before the pregnancy, as advised earlier. It is not necessary, of course, to interrupt the use of pills, not finishing them to the end, since this can completely upset the hormonal balance. It is more reasonable to finish the available pills in the package, then delay one cycle, and only then proceed to the implementation of the plan.

Do not panic before time

Do not despair if pregnancy does not occur immediately. Indeed, according to statistics, only 25 women have 100 ties of birth control pills after birth control pills. Only these 25 become pregnant during the first month.66 percent - within six months, 80 percent - in tons of 9 months, 85 12 months, 96 - after 18 months. So, neither panic nor rush things are not worth it. And someone does not interfere with patience.

How do birth control pills work?

In order to reassure those who do not fall into the number of 25 women who manage to get pregnant after birth control pills during the first month, we recall the mechanism of action of these same pills. The fact is that in those who take them, ovarian activity is suppressed, which excludes ovulation. After the end of contraceptive use, ovarian function is gradually restored. Ovulation occurs. And a woman can become pregnant again.

be careful

If at the end of taking contraceptives the menstrual cycle becomes irregular, this may indicate that you had it before, even before taking contraceptives, was one that you simply did not pay attention to. In such cases, you should consult a doctor.
